Genesys Spine has announced the launch of its Sacroiliac Joint Fusion system. The system consists of partially threaded and fully threaded implants designed to secure the sacroiliac joint and minimise micro-motion enabling bony fusion.
In a press release, Genesys Spine said that advantages of the system include dual thread designs that incorporate a differential pitch for controlled compression across the joint. The cannulated design allows for minimally invasive placement, Genesys said, adding that the system is offered in fully threaded and dual threaded configurations.
Optional washers are designed to maximise purchase on the ilium without burying the implant head in the bone. The system incorporates increased surface roughness to help facilitate osteoinduction and rifled inner diameter to reduce inadvertent targeting pin migration.
Kaywan Gamadia, DO, Cape Spine & Neurosurgery Cape Girardeau (Missouri, USA), said: “The Genesys Spine SI Fusion System is a game changer. It provides one streamlined system that addresses the pathology of sacroiliitis in both the lateral and posterior approaches. Many SI pain patients are mis/underdiagnosed due to their pain mimicking low back pain. This system will deliver health care providers with versatile tools to treat these patients in need of an SI Joint Fusion.”
